Dear publisher, if you cant responde to the email which I sent you long time ago, at lest reply to this thread and give us answer when can we expect this expansion at retailers (in europe, usa)? We who are your customers, and who have already preorder this expansion, we deserve this information. We know you are reading this thread.

I preordered at Coolstuff and they have it listed as Aug/Sep / 3rd quarter. Doesn't the place you have it preordered give you a rough estimate? When they have a firm release date I am sure they will let everyone know. When publishers give a release date and do not meet the said date people get the outrage. Play the awesome base game as is for a couple more months and let the anger subside.

Yep, retailer gave me estimate date when I preordered it 3 months ago - mid June. Now its almost August. I asked them again for fresh update, they said they are waiting information from publisher. I dont understand whats the problem for giving us an information, so that I know will I cancel this preorder or not. My shipment is waiting only because of this expansion, or better say because of wrong informations and lack of information. That sucks!

Quit this attitude - why do you speak as if you're special and should be told or have an email responded to promptly?

Like many others, I am looking forward to getting this but the publisher will release information when they want to and/or when the right time is.

I'm sure you like the game but that doesn't give you any extra entitlement for immediate information.

I am not some special, just trying to get some information. I tried to to contacted them by email, but they didn't gave me any reply. And we are living in society, so it is maybe polite to give reply on email? Especially if you are waiting on order for 3 months!

In another thread, the publisher just indicated that it may be a 4-week push or it may slip until Essen.

Every customer is special for a company. He has a right to ask why he got the wrong info from the publisher, who is apparently not responding. I don't understand why you get upset with his question frankly.

Because you're acting entitled to something you aren't and making unnecessarily passive aggressive comments.

Why aren't you entitled? Apparently he preordered based on a given date. If hé writes to the publisher, after asking the retailer, and asks why there is a delay after several months, why shouldn't you expect an answer. It doesn't have to be a date even, maybe just a quick update. But not answering at all is, I can imagine, frustrating.

Frustrating? Yes.

I’d rather this released when it’s done than rushed out the door with any number of issues (misprints, balance issues, printing inconsistencies, stock shortages, etc..).


Mr.Pfister will delivery quality if we’re patient.

Really? Mid June was when you preordered? That's only just nearly a month and a half. No where near 3 months according to my math.

Yes it sucks the publisher didn't respond but they also don't always deal with distribution of several countries so as far as we know, they sent your email to their local distributor and its them who didn't respond. A little patience and courtesy would help immensely.

I think he's saying that 3 months ago he was told mid June.

Ah!! If that is indeed the case, I sincerely apologize. Didn't think anyone ever quoted mid-June for release. I always heard around Gen Con myself .

I think I remember a late June date was given here in the forums, but I'm too lazy to search for it now, sorry

I arranged with my olgs to send stuff out every time they get £100 worth available (for free shipping). Works nicely for me for preorders

They likely can't because it's either still be made or on a boat somewhere in the Pacific. They will be able to estimate arrival once it's cleared customs, that's typically the 2-3 week window until shelves. Everything before that is highly volatile and virtually impossible to gauge.
